The Centre for Earth Evolution and Dynamics (CEED) is a centre for Centre of Excellence financed by The Research Council of Norway (2013 to 2023).
CEED is a cross disciplinary research centre and covers a great diversity of geoscience disciplines including geology, physics, mathematics, chemistry, palaeoclimatology, palaeontology, tectonics, palaeomagnetism, geodynamics, seismology, mineral physics, planetology, computational and atmospheric science.
CEED's research is focused on six main themes with underlying subthemes. Each theme is studied by a dedicated group of researchers led by a teamleader, but many research activities are also developed across groups.
The center is headed by a Director and an Assistant Director.
- Director: Carmen Gaina, Professor, CEED/Dept. of Geosciences
- Assistant director: Trond H. Torsvik, Professor, CEED/Dept. of Geosciences
The center has also a scientific board consisting of three members.
